A look at our shutter styles.
Fully height shutters Perhaps our most sought-after style because of their beauty, elegance and the variety of windows that they can be fitted to.
Full height shutter panels span to the full width of the door or window and may also have the function of opening the louvre independently sections (we refer to this as an Mid Rail (also known as a Split Louvre).
Tier-on-Tier plantation shutters – Tier-on-Tier shutters are extremely flexible, since the top and bottom tiers are open separately from each other (not only the louvers) The window is protected by two sets of screens (an higher set as well as a lower) typically constructed and measured to match the natural cracks within the windows.
Tier Shutters and Tier Shutters are usually appropriate in urban settings in which you need security from the lowest section or in homes that have particular large windows.
Form-fitting plantation shutters – Bespoke shutters are the ideal and often only way to cover an odd or unusual window design, including arched, porthole, triangular and half-circle oval, octagon an angled, eyebrow, elongated sunburst, trapezoid and sunburst.
Shutters can also provide a custom solution for windows on roofs, gable end windows attics, and eaves.
Cafe-style plantation shutters They cover the lower half of the window. Ideal and attractive for windows that are on the ground floor with a view of a pavement or street or bedrooms on the first floor and bathrooms that require a lot of lighting and privacy.
Tracked or sliding Plantation shutters are commonly utilized in modern-day apartments, they can be a great solution for huge windows and expanses, including Bi-Fold doors and windows, wardrobes, pools rooms partitions.
They can be used for numerous other applications that traditional window treatments would have a difficult time fitting or provide the same level of privacy and control over light options track shutters provide. Sliding shutters Perth can be found in two systems Bi-Fold and BiPass.
Solid Shutters – Our oldest shutter design solid shutters were traditionally fitted on bay windows or sash windows in higher-end properties.
The shutters that are solid are hinged so that they fold into boxes on the opposite side so that the shutters are completely hidden after they are folded down.
Once you’ve decided on the style you prefer, what do you do to select the layout?
The first thing you should consider first is “Do do I wish for the shutters to fully open or do I imagine that I’ll use the louvres to alter the amount of light entering the building”?
If you would like to to open the windows completely take a look at where the shutters can open. Is there any furniture near the window that would block the opening? Also, do you need to bi-fold the shutters so that this can happen due to the wall that is on the other end of your window. It all is a matter of personal home and the style you’re looking for.
Many people want Tier On Tier shutters, but with large panels. However, this is typically not feasible since once the upper tier is opened and the panels can become an obstruction to other things within the space. The best solution is to either fold them in two so that they don’t block the view, or go for the Full Height style where the panels will stay in their place. With a big loupe (89mm or greater) you will have plenty of light and visibility when they’re open.
